Hi Geeks
Antivirus software (Avast free v5) icon crossed on desktop meaning it's disabled. Opening console and clicking Fix doesn't restart the program. Also having web pages open by themselves. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Avast - won't restart. Removed avast then ran MBAM - found multiple viruses including Backdoor.bot, Trojan.2bot, Security.hijack, Malware.trace and Hijack.userinit. Used MBAM to remove these and rebooted - some required rebooting to delete. Then reinstalled Avast - same problem. Currently running MBAM full in safe mode but worried problems aren't fixed. Help appreciated.

Do as much of


as you can. If a step won't work, skip to the next one. Copy and paste your gmer, mbam, otl, & extras logs into a reply. Do not attach them.

If you lose internet access after running MBAM or if you are not able to get to the downloads:

In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings, then uncheck all boxes and OK. Close IE and restart IE.

In FireFox, Tools, Options, Advanced, Settings, check No Proxy then OK. Close Firefox and restart Firefox.

In Chrome, Wrench, Options, Under the Hood, Change Proxy Settings, uncheck all boxes, OK.
